rosekolodny: WeenerGord: maram500: And I have a very simple theory as to how the kids are never seen running around when they aren't supposed to or mouthing off or doing anything that isn't Stepford-like perfect: drugs.

Don't assume everyone is like you


I want so badly for you to be the House of Gord guy.

But.. for the record, I am pretty sure one can achieve that level of obedience using simple brainwashing and the threat of eternal damnation/separation from those you love.  At least until they're old enough to start banging the whole rugby team.  And whichever kid turns out gay is going to need a lot of therapy.


First, you assume only one of the twenty kids will turn out gay. I'm guessing at least two, if not three. (The best guess of the incidence of homosexuality in the population being 1 in 10).

Second...theyre ALL going to need a great deal of therapy.

About the family in the article, since only a few of the family have this condition, were these a cluster of births that might have been exposed to a toxin no longer present?  If it's genetic, are the rest of the family carriers, and need to not breed?

Man, I hate when I have to actually go read up on stuff first thing in the morning.  BRB

Hmmm. A Turkish scientist citing this condition in a Kurdish family as evidence that we can devolve. Nothing politically or racially motivated about that conclusion whatsoever.

Cerebellar Hypoplasia, not to be confused with Cranial Rectumiasis.

I thought there were more recent studies on these folks that debunked the whole de-evolution theory.  If I remember correctly, they walking on all fours was a result of environmental reasons, such as bad parenting and learned bad habits.

fusillade762: "What is the year?" Tan said he asked one of the siblings.

"Eighty," one said. "Ninety," another replied. "Animals," said another. "July," explained the fourth. "House," the last said.

No one answered "Potato"?


"What is this?"
"It's a b... It's a b... It's a small, off-duty, Czechoslovakian traffic warden!"

Jaden Smith First of His Name: This is making me rethink my entire childhood walking up stairs with my hands because it was easier.


Probably not the same thing. I did that too, and I turned out just fine.
These people walk down the stairs on all fours too.

Ah, Head Up Butt Syndrome. I have that, complicated by Skull Full Of Rocksitis.

Anyway.

Inchoate: Jaden Smith First of His Name: This is making me rethink my entire childhood walking up stairs with my hands because it was easier.

I still do that

Kitties can have cerebellar hypoplasia, IIRC. It's sometimes cute, in an aww-you-poor-little-guy kind of way.


I had nearly talked my SO into us adopting a kitten with hypoplasia. Little guy didn't let it stop him from trying to keep up and play with the other kitties in the cage. When she finally caved and we returned, he had already been adopted. Guess I wasn't the only one to see his awesomeness.
